Auburn is located in an inland farm belt in western Bay County.
It's proximity to the Tri-Cities, being just seven miles west of Bay City, eleven miles north of Saginaw, and four miles east of Midland, affords the residents of this peaceful community easy access to the jobs, shopping and entertainment of all three of these larger cities.
Auburn is the quality of life you've searched for...the natural quality. With a hometown atmosphere and an un-congested, relaxed lifestyle, you will enjoy this environment where peace and tranquility balance the faster pace of the larger surrounding cities. Auburn's environment allows a reverence for tradition as well as an open mind to progress, which is ideal for family living.
In the past, Auburn has been dominated primarily by agriculture. Today, a move toward service and light manufacturing exists, as demonstrated by the presence of Dow Corning International and Dow Corning Manufacturing.
Many services are provided locally to residents of the Auburn Area. We are proud to have the most dedicated and efficient volunteer fire department in the State of Michigan. They have the most modern equipment and an exceptional record of minimizing property losses. The Auburn Police and Bay County Sheriffs Departments maintain extremely low levels of crime and help keep the streets safe for everyone.
All through the year, Auburn people work together to educate the young and care for the old. We welcome you to come and explore Auburn. You will discover it is a wonderful place to visit and a fine place to live.
